Healthy Pizza? It’s Possible With These 5 Recipes
For many people, pizza tops the list of favorite foods. Not only is the drool-worthy combo of cheese, bread, and sauce satisfying, but it’s one of the easiest meals to pick up (or have delivered) from your local pizzeria. While your favorite slice may be delicious, it can be easy to go overboard on sodium-laden sauce, toppings, and high-calorie crusts.
Luckily it’s just as easy — and delicious — to pop a homemade pie into the oven. With a few simple swaps and key ingredients, you can give your favorite comfort food a wholesome makeover without skimping on flavor. So whether you’re craving a fresh-out-of-the-oven slice or just looking for a hassle-free weeknight meal, these five healthy and delicious pies are better than delivery!
Greek Vegetable Pizza
This Greek vegetable pizza from Lauren Kelly Nutrition is ideal as an appetizer or lunch. Trading tomato sauce for a tzatziki made with low-fat, plain Greek yogurt adds a dose of protein, while thin-crust tortillas are a smart swap for high-calorie pizza dough. Add chopped fresh vegetables, including tomatoes, avocado, and olives for an easy dish anytime.
